Cause for concern?
Spanning the state to bring you the endless
variety of corroding masonry, Michigan's bridges
have been found to be in a horrendous state of dis-
repair. A Washington-based highway industry group
reported that more than one of every four bridges
here is deficient or obsolete. The Road Informa-
tion Program reported a total of 280 bridges were
"major structurally deficient" by federal regulation
standards. Another 160 bridges were "functionally
obsolete" and yet another 2,350 were "minor struc-
turally deficient." Repairs for the inadequate struc-
tures will run in the neighborhood of $142 million.
The artcle describing the report failed to mention
the location of these hazards. But don't worry.
You'll drive off that bridge when you come to it.

Great sage speaks
From the depths of his New York office/sanc-
tuary, Leonard Swartz speaks-and the world lis-
tens. Swartz, or "Astute Leonard" as his disciples
call him, is the president of a large franchised
employment agency. In his spare time, Astute
chooses to espouse the Gopsel, and his latest gem
is sure to grace the pages of the Holy Bible. Says
Swartz, service jobs are the best for part-time work
for women who want to add to their incomes. He
said the best jobs are, in this order: waitress, sec-
retary, salesperson, teller or cashier, door-to-door
salesperson, and home services like babysitting or
dressmaking. Oh thank you, Saint Leonard. We find
your effulgence dazzling.
Blowing off steam
Texas chili cooks really felt they had something
to gas about. Their California counterparts were
seeking to move the world championship cooking
contest to their home state. C. V. Wood of Los
Angeles and his International Chili Society an-
nounced the event would be moved to California
from its usual site in Terlingua, Texas where it
has been held for the past eight years;. The Texas
Chili Society was outraged at accusations that Ter-
lingua is a "ramshackle, weatherbeaten town miles
from nowhere" devoid of "creature comforts" and
too dusty. But good old fasihoned American justice
came through again as a court order blocked the
attempt, thus taking the pressure off the siuation.
If you were thinking of joining the Patty Hearst
fan club, forget it. The illustrious heiress and some-
time "deluded" SLA member has been swamped

her attorney, said Patty was so fogged by her 19-
month recent ordeal that she will not be answering
her mail. Supposedly not all of the mail has been
rave reviews of Heart's recent performance, and
Johnson said many of the letters made her fear
for her life. But if the depths of your feelings run
past the idea that Patty will never pen a response
to your letter, you can write her at the San Mateo
Couny Jail in Redwood Ciy, Calif. Don't forget the
You think you got it bad now? You think you're
spending a lot more money than in "the good old
days?" Well friends, put this in your over-priced
pipe and smoke it. Some economists believe the
worst inflation ever in the United States was dur-
ing the Civil War in the Confederacy. An item
costing $1 in the early months of 1861 cost about
$42.80 by Decmber 1864. By the spring of the next
year, the same item had risen in cost to about $92.

PARIS (Reuter) - An interrupted dialogue be-
tween oil producers and their rich and poor cus-
tomers opened up again here last mnight with an
agreement to hold a major ministerial confer-
ence in Paris in mid-December..
The agreement came a few hours after the re-
sumption of 10-sided preparatory talks between
representatives of the major producers, consum-
ers and developing countries.
THEY DECIDED to call a "conference on in-
ternational economic cooperation" in the French
capital on December 16, scheduled to last two or
Speeches by the United States and other coun-
tries gave hope that the session will not break
down as it did six months ago but will be able
to prepare for the larger ministerial conference
in December. Delegates from both sides private-
ly expressed confidence that the bitter deadlock
at last April's meeting was a thing of the past.

the ministerial conference, because of its status
as a future oil producer, had not been raised at

WASHINGTON (A - President Ford yesterday signed
the resolution by Congress authorizing the manning of
early warning stations in the Sinai by American civilians.
Without elaboration, the President also said he
would "soon consult Congress on what is required to
sustain U. S. relations with Middle East countries.
WHITE HOUSE officials said he referred to aid requests now
being prepared which are expected to be sent to Congress within
the next two or three weeks.
The Americans to man the Sinai stations are not expected to
be flown to the Middle east until February. Their number is ek-
pected to total 200.
Ford signed the resolution with photographers and reporters
as his only witnesses.
"I REAFFIRMED today that we will not accept stagnation or
stalemate in the Middle East," he said, adding that the United
States must continue its diplomatic efforts with the nations of the
Middle East "in order to sustain the momentum toward peace
generaed by the Sinai agreement."
Ford said participation by U. S. civilians in the warning net-
work demonstratesa determination to continue what he described
as two years of "vigorous diplomatic efforts to promote the pros-
pects of peace."
"With the help and negotiating skill of Secretary Kissinger we
have made progress in good part because of the trust placed in the
United States by both Israel and its Arab neighbors," he said,

retary of State Henry Kissinger.

for his actions in that situation.
As a result of those efforts,

as 'a cheap shot."
